What is a healthy home?

A Healthy Home follows these seven principles: keep it maintained, pest free, clean, dry, safe, well-ventilated, and contaminant free.  If these principles are applied, you can have a healthy home for many years to come whether you live in a newly constructed home or one built over 100 years ago.
